Minding the US store

Regarding the editorial "Domestic Policy, Foreign Policy," Nov. 7: The significance of an integrated approach to foreign and domestic policy is paramount to the US, and will be more so in the next century.Now that the world is depolarized, America should strengthen itself domestically, as well as internationally. "A US in economic or cultural crisis will not help the rest of the world." And the rest of the world will not necessarily help a weak US. On the international front, the US is no longer the only country to be listened to in the world arena. As bonds between nations are formed and grow stronger, such as with the European Community, the US would be wise to jump on the wagon of world affairs. David T. Culkin, Enterprise, Ala.
